Probably not, although it could lead to other problems which would cause your car not to start.

Does low compression and engine won't start mean a blown head gasket on a car that overheated?

If it was a head gasket then the compresion would be low in the affected cylinders low compresion as a result of wear wil make the car hard to start and overheating can also lead to electrical problems, Besides blowing a head gasket, overheating can also cause a cylinder head ro crack. Low compression and engine not starting or hard to start are symptoms. As mentioned above, do not discard the possibility of electrical problems due to overheating. However, the prime suspects are blown head gasket and/or cracked cylinder head.

What would cause Engine oil have lumps in it?

probably a blown head gasket if the oil looks milky or has bubbles in it

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that overheated and will not start if the head gasket busted or if the head cracked would this prevent the vehicle from starting?

Depending on the location of the blowout or crack, it could seep water into the oil, or oil into the water. In some cases, the blown head gasket could seep water into the exhaust manifold, which will cause steam or water to come out of the tailpipe. If the blowout or crack is in one of the cylinders, you will loose compression and cause your engine not to start.

What is wrong with your 1998 Plymouth Neon if it chugs when you start it and the check engine light just keeps flashing and not giving a code?

I would have your computer recalibrated and find the source of why it got messed up in the first place. Also a slipped timing belt and bad head gasket will also cause that very same problem. I race these little cars so i have a pretty good idea what would cause allot of problems with them. If the check engine light stays off during normal driving i would definatly look into the engine timing and or head gaskets.

How do you repair a cylinder with no compression?

Start with removing the cylinder head to determine the cause of no compression. If it is a valve problem, have the head rebuilt. If it is a piston or piston ring problem, remove the engine for rebuilding or replacement.

Your Saturn SC2 coupe has lost all power and will not start?

Start with a compression test. Head gaskets fail when an engine overheats and that's a common cause of sudden engine failure. It doesn't always mean that the engine has to have overheated RECENTLY; sometimes it has to be run for a while.

I blown head gasket can cause an engine miss which one cause a rough idle.

Will a blown head gasket or warped head cause it not to start?

It really depends on how bad the problem is. If the problem is a small leak in the head gasket or head, then the engine will start and may even run ok for a little bit before it starts overheating. If the leak is bad enough a good deal of antifreeze might be inside the engine and starting it could result in severe damage (this is called hydrolock), and you will likely need another engine if this happens. No matter if you can start it or not, it is strongly recommended that you minimize any driving in it and get it fixed as soon as possible.

What would cause antifreeze to leak into the engine oil?

Most likely a failed head gasket or a cracked or warped head. Less likely but possible is a crack in the block.

Will a bad head gasket cause a engine to overheat?

If it blows in the right place. The exhaust is getting into the water passage which will cause the car to overheat. Probably in just a few minutes. With the engine cold, take the radiator cap off, make sure it is full. start the car. If the head gasket is blown, water will shoot out the cap for a foot or two.

Coolant entering the combustion chamber and the oil pan. This will cause serious engine damage and stalling due to the plugs getting wet. You should not even be driving a vehicle with a blown head gasket unless you do not care if you destroy the engine.
